Benefits of getting an expungement in San Diego

As a former prosecutor, I believed every person that attempted to get their case expunged was wise.  It helps cap a very traumatic process that the person went through.  

 Perhaps there is a felony conviction somewhere in your past. Maybe you think it was a minor felony as felonies go, and you served your time and can move on with your life. It might be a misdemeanor DUI conviction.  Unfortunately, in the society we live in, the reality is that something like a criminal conviction follows you everywhere, even if it is just a misdemeanor. You may not think it’s worth the time, money and effort to get your record expunged. If that’s true, here are five reasons why you will definitely want to reconsider. A San Diego expungement definitely has its benefits

A clean criminal record can make the difference in whether or not you get the job you want or the loan you need to buy a house or car, and other areas of your life you may not have even considered. If you don’t want one mistake to haunt you for the rest of your life, you should learn everything possible about expunging a criminal record.  A San Diego expungement is something you should consider.

Here are some examples of how getting your case expunged can help you.

I can think of 10 reasons

  • 1. Employment
  • 2. Education
  • 3. Housing
  • 4. Loans
  • 5. Licensing
  • 6. Insurance
  • 7. Firearm Rights
  • 8. Federal Assistance
  • 9. Adoption
  • 10. Volunteering

Here are some in detail: 

1. Getting a job

If you’ve ever filled out a job application, you probably remember the section where they ask if you’ve ever been convicted of a crime. This always creates an awkward situation for someone with a criminal record. They can either answer truthfully and risk not getting the job, or lie and risk being in violation of the law once again. If you successfully expunge your record, you should be able to truthfully write “no” in answer to that question. A San Diego Expungement will no doubt assist you.

2. Getting a loan

A San Diego Expungement will help you better obtain a loan.  Some loan agencies think that a criminal conviction is an indication that someone is less likely to meet their financial obligations. That means you may be facing prohibitive interest rates or be unable to get a loan at all. That means difficulty buying a car, a home, or paying for an education. Combine that with difficulty getting a job and you could be in a very tough situation.

3. Adoption

Have you ever considered adopting a child? Do you want to adopt one right now? If you do, you may want to look into getting your record expunged. 15 states currently make it illegal for someone with a criminal record to adopt children. You should note that in most if not all cases, criminal convictions involving offenses against minors cannot be expunged, so if you have been involved in a crime involving children or a sex crime, you will almost certainly never be able to adopt a child. A San Diego Expungement will no doubt assist in this process.

4. Peace of mind

Although there are many other reasons why expunging your criminal record is definitely to your advantage, the most important one might be your own peace of mind. While you have that mark on your record, it’s hard to feel truly free. When you clear your record you have a clean slate. You can feel like a truly contributing member of society, just as entitled to the rights and privileges of a citizen as anyone else around you. Even if you’ve taken your punishment for your offense, it’s sometimes hard to feel like it’s completely behind you while your criminal record is still out there.  A San Diego Expungement can help achieve this. If this is something that you would be interested in…please contact the Law Offices of Mark Deniz and schedule a free consultation.
